It was the fulfillment of a dream and an experience that he described as “incredible.” On April 17th, Orlando Schmidt completed the Boston Marathon running 26 miles (42 kilometres) in 3 hours and 35 minutes -just 5 minutes shy of his goal. “Running Boston was an incredible experience,” he said. “The crowds were huge and very loud. Often children lined the course on either side with their hands reaching out to give a ‘high five’ or offer an orange slice or cup of water. I enjoyed running along the side of the course and slapping the kids’ hands.” Schmidt qualified for the race last fall when he completed a marathon in Victoria, BC. When he realized that he would be running in a world famous marathon, he decided that he wanted to do more than simply run a race, he wanted to use the experience to make a difference in the lives of others.
